The smbk5pwd overlay (I tested with an older version and HEAD) seems to handle
Daylight Savings Time incorrectly when it comes to the sambaPwdLastSet
attribute, populating it with a value that does not take DST into account.  As
an example, consider the following attributes from one of the entries in my

pwdChangedTime: 20110502160329Z
sambaPwdLastSet: 1304352209

Obviously, pwdChangedTime specifies the timestamp:

Mon May  2 16:03:29 EDT 2011

On the other hand, sambaPwdLastSet specifies the timestamp as being an hour
later, as calculated with the 'date' command (date -d'1970-01-01 1304352209

Mon May  2 17:03:29 EDT 2011

Right now we're in DST on the east coast, which is GMT -0400.  This would mean
that pwdChangedTime is correct, but sambaPwdLastSet is still incorrectly
calculating results using GMT -0500.
